Critic Reviews for Marvel's The Punisher Season 2

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (3)

What makes this season of "The Punisher" work so well is that it feels less like a Season 2 and more like a Season 5, a standalone story in the established adventures of Frank Castle.

Here's the most unforgivable sin of the second season of The Punisher: You have a magnificent performance like this one at your disposal, and this is what you choose to do with it?

Jan 17, 2019 | Full Review…

It does look like Frank's new lease on life is about up. It is time for The Punisher to start kicking into gear.

Sep 20, 2019 | Full Review…

The Punisher Season 2 is a lot of fun - really violent, excessive fun... But there's also no denying that this time around, The Punisher has swapped bullets for brains, leaning into easy entertainment over meaningful narrative.

Jun 20, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Although Season 2 of The Punisher begins too sluggishly, and despite its distracting detours and tonal issues, it builds to a largely satisfying conclusion.

Jon Bernthal Is The Living Embodiment of Frank Castle In An Enjoyable Second Run

Mar 10, 2019 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

The Punisher, like the man himself, is not always easy to love. But there's a lesson to be learned in those moments, too, and I hope Frank continues to grow as a person right alongside the series.

Feb 28, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite the fact that this season seems to take a step back from the first, The Punisher continues to be a worthy piece of entertainment. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 25, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

There was clearly no one building this story with knowledge that Netflix would be cancelling all of their Marvel shows and that is a shame because the third season could have fnally been worthy of the name of the show.

Why are we coming back to all these people again?

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

This could have been eight episodes.

I enjoyed this season. I always seem to walk away from The Punisher wondering if it might actually low-key be my favorite of the Marvel/Netflix shows. But it's better when it doesn't try to justify itself, or defend itself.

Audience Reviews for Marvel's The Punisher: Season 2

    This season sucked me in and was invested in the characters. Enjoyable series.
  • Aug 08, 2020
    This one was very awesome
  • Aug 03, 2020
    Season 2 is dreadful! Season 1 was epic, yes but here we are at the second season and oh boy, is it annoying! Russo can't seem to get over his ugly face completely forgetting what he did to Castle's family! Castle and Curtis look and sound miserable like suddenly their balls were chewed upon by the great white shark.. Russo's over acting deserves an award for being stupid and outright naive. Madani is a lost cause and the season deserved without her. Mahoney doesn't leave much to be cared for anyway. The acting is poor, the script even worse. High expectations and then this. They aren't coming back with the third season. Good riddance.

    Not as great as the first, as the backstory doesn't drive it, but still AWESOME.
  • Jul 15, 2020
    Violence so much epic
  • Jul 10, 2020
    Awesome show, shame Disney Netflix politics killed it
  • Jul 10, 2020
    Grate Second Session Man I Really Want Them To Bring This Show Back So Bad ❤️ Please 🤞🏻
  • Jul 09, 2020
    Like too many of these shows, these shows encourage you to binge watch to the end, with major plot developments happening between episodes and filler within the middle. Unfortunately, for it to be successful there has to be a good payoff at the end, and this is where Season 2 falls flat and ends in an anticlimactic manner. The two separate storylines suggests they combined a theoretical Season 3 into this rather than cutting it out completely. This is unfortunate because with more focus on a single plotline, it could have been remarkable. It does have its high points though. Go in for the ride, but don't hold your breathe for the ending.

    Loved the first season more but 2nd season still dope AF
  • Jun 29, 2020
    Segunda temporada na minha opinião foi melhor que a primeira, top 10 essa série...uma pena por questão de negócios a NetFlix não renovar ela.
